Format: Kindle Edition
Rich in Small Things is a shamelessly fun book. Full of lean, classy prose, Beal leads you on an adventure, skipping seamlessly about between fantastic characters and brilliant situations.

Steal a penguin from a zoo, lay in a field of Lavender, run Quads into a Straight Flush - it's all here.

The book has a lot of heart, and is fundamentally about friendships, loyalty, and the value of risk taking.

Highly recommended.

I really enjoyed this book which takes you on an adventure from an exit from the high flying banking world, through online poker, losing a real poker game with the Ukrainian mafia (oops!) and an exciting adventure driving in a race across Europe to Mongolia!

I am not a card player let alone a poker player, I do love travelling though so I wondered if I would just enjoy bits of the book. How wrong I was - I loved it all!

The way the author describes the games of poker gave me an insight into the game, raising the tension in the book without being over technical and losing me, I loved the journey across Europe in the beat up old ambulance and all the characters that come and go from the book and even if you haven't been travelling you'll love this.

From the opening high energy scene it is a story of an exciting adventure and I found the characters all developed through the course of the book - the good and the bad, you'll love some and hate others, probably change your minds about one or two and I'd be very surprised if you didn't relate to most of them!

Although just a novel it has made me think about what I really want in my life and where I want to be going - must go, need to go and do some travel research! Life is too short - but not to read this book! I'd recommend you find time for it!

Book review: Rich in Small Things by Helen J Beal

The book appeals to me instantly as it relates to a young lady who loses her job in the city and finds that her skills are suited to online gambling. I am one of many who believe that many bankers are no more than professional gamblers. All gamblers, no matter talented, either hit a losing streak sooner or later or go for that one big risky deal. The excuse after a failure is that their methods worked perfectly until that one unlucky market crash but now everything is back to normal and they should be given another chance. Anyway, back to the book...

Melissa finds she is a natural at online gambling and soon finds she is a class act on the real poker table too. Like many of us she finds that drink played a part in her one big mistake and she is suddenly indebted to Ukranian thugs.

Melissa's private life echos her profession as a steady relationship is followed by a fling. She throws herself at an East End wide boy, Henry. Before her big loss she already knows he works for the Ukranians.

In the biggest gamble of all Melissa, with a new female friend, embarks on a journey that takes the story on a long drive all the way from London, via Europe and Eastern Europe to Mongolia. This is a big change in direction for the book and we enter the world of treasure hunts, rallying, car mechanics and travelling. The Ukranians tag along to keep an eye on their debtor but there are numerous new characters forming the other teams. It takes a while to get to know all the personnel but it is worth the effort. My usual gripe applies where I would love to see a list of characters at the start of a novel like this, even with a little of their background.
